CAD-CUT® Glitter Flake™ has been one of our fastest growing heat transfer film products over the past year. Since we launched Glitter Flake in 3 colors in 2009, the color range has expanded to 38 colors! Along the way, we’ve received a ton of requests for White Glitter Flake and trust me we’ve been relentless in developing a white that really works. We’re very excited to have a break through and announce that we now have a white that is sparkly […]
Technically yesterday was national take your child to work day…but I had my daughter Madalyn visit for a long lunch today and we did some t-shirt decorating. I wanted to share our finished product. Now let me give you some background on these shirts… The dance school she attends sells a shirt each year for the dance recital. All of the kids wear them and apparently “bling” them up. When I joined her at dance class the night she received […]

Printing the cupcake on Express Print for the zebra pattern effect and then dropping the Pink Glitter Flake on top for the icing. […]
Times are changing…It seems like I’ve been on a whirlwind tour through all the warm parts of the country over the last few weeks and I’m not quite done yet. January/February is a whirlwind of trade show activity. Managed to get a day of Disney World with my family, a speaking opportunity at ASI Orlando, my first ASI trade show experience in Orlando, 4 customer visits with our Florida sales rep Mark Schwarb, a couple of days in Fort Lauderdale […]
I’ve been watching the Olympic trials over the past few nights and with the Summer games approaching we’re starting to excited about the possibilities for Team USA in the various sports. One sport that I haven’t watched too much until now is Gymnastics. My 3-year-old daughter is just starting to try dance classes like ballet, jazz and tap as well as gymnastics at our local YMCA. Given her interest in these, she (as well as my wife and I) enjoyed […]
Expanding your offering of print effects doesn’t have to be difficult, at least not now! In the past, to sample materials or launch a new line of colors, you’d need to purchase 5 yard rolls or 1 yard cuts in the various products you wanted to offer or evaluate.
